secretary, chuck hagel. the hearings could start as early as this week. the white house has mounted a vigorous defense. hagel says his record on iran, gays and the military has been distorted. members of the armed services committee will question hagel. but today on "face the nation," senator john mccain called hagel a friend, though he has questions and is annoyed at how the white house has handled the nomination. >> usually wprevious presidents, republican and democrat, when they are considering nominations, they call in the other side and the key members on the other party and say, hey, i am thinking about nominating mr. "x," what do you think about it? there has been none of that. >> reporter: the former secretary of the joint chiefings and colin powell gave his backing to hagel, even though he was one of the largest critics of the war in iraq, a war that powell helped to sell to the american people. he tried to stop the surge, calling it the biggest foreign policy blunder since vietnam. >> he is superbly qualified, based on his overall record and seferts to his country and bas
us and are continuing to kill snus and chuck hagel, the same thing. if it wasn't so scary, and so dangerous, we've got chuck hagel going to be the new defense secretary. chuck hagel could not identify hezbollah, hamas or the iranian national guard as terrorists, he also has said, sanctions don't work, all president obama told us all during the campaign was how terrific the sanctions worked and then also told us we shouldn't attack iran. explain to me how you're going to stop them from becoming a nuclear power if you don't use sanctions and take the idea of a possible military attack off the table and what kind of signal sending to iran to select somebody who believes that. basically president obama is signaling them, i don't really believe in the sanctions that much and don't worry we'll never attack you. >> sean: how do you interpret this in a broader picture. we're going through the president or joe biden is talking about executive orders to advance their gun control initiative. we have nancy pelosi saying let's use the 14th amendment let's forget article 1, section 7, congress
to me that jack lew kept moving the goal posts on them. yes, there will be opposition. for chuck hagel, no. i believe in the end jack lew will get confirmed. but i'll tell you this, the reason the white house put off the announcement of jack lew until tomorrow is because of the fiscal cliff. they didn't want it to get involved in the negotiations for the fiscal cliff. they felt that they already had a fight on their hands. they didn't want to add any fuel to the fire on that, which is why they've held off of the nomination until this week. they do expect him to get confirmed and so do i. >> john kerry, secretary of state. we've got a lot of white males, shall we say, chuck hagel, we have pictures up there. jack lew, eric holder is over at the justice department. he's not a white male. he's an african-american. but no women. >> men. men. >> i want to put up another picture of the seen yr staff, if you will. there you you he sue the staff. there's been mur muring that there's not enough women part of this white house, the inner circle. what are folks saying about that? >> the visual you
to him. >> beautiful woman, few ugly plane problems and key cabinet picks like chuck hagel. >> i came to admire his courage, his judgment, his willingness to speak his mind, even if it wasn't popular. >> turns out he's not too popular with some. >> chuck hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense, would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. >> profoundly wrong on some of the biggest national security threats confronting the united states today. >>> mechanical problems keep rolling in for boeing's 787 dreamliner. >> more like a nightmare. three of boeing's brand new planes suffered a slue of issues. >> fire and leaking fuel. >> error message related to the plane's braking system. >> all these little glitches that boeing says they are, or is there something else that's happening? >> reporter: nope. boeing says just growing pains. but airlines are growing impatient. >> they have a quality problem. and this quality problem should be resolved. >> reporter: speaking of problems. >> wow, i tell you quarterbacks, you get all the
for nominated chuck hagel for defense secretary, would it have helped the president to take a stronger stance on this issue today? either telling the country the troop count or being open of the fact of, hey, look, we're not on the schedule to announce this and telling the public why. >> no, at the end of the day, you go through your evaluations. i talked to a three-star general who served in afghanistan who made it perfectly clear that these are delicate situations, you're still dealing with a country where we're trying to get the security forces up to par. you also don't just want to just make some kind of announcement without thinking it through. i talked to a senior administration official who said to lead 10,000 troops in afghanistan could cost us $30 billion a year. the president also has to make an economic decision, as well. so, look, if panetta is saying i want it done in weeks and the president is simply saying i'm going to take a few more months, i say take your time because you're dealing with the lives of american troops. >> that's a fair point. of course, the time -- the clock i
a little in the next segment. let me ask you, two recent announcements in relation to chuck hagel as defense secretary and john brennan cia. i have a problem and a lot of people do when, for example, chuck hagel couldn't identify hamas and hezbollah as terrorist organizations. he was reluctant to do that, or even the iranian revolutionary guard or his comments about israel which i found quite disturbing. when he goes on to say that the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people and in the case of brennan, he's got issues involving the holyland case where one of these hamas guys actually got into our national security center. when you read those things, nothing your background and knowing our enemy, what do you think? >> well, i think that, first, i don't judge the president's cabinet selections in quite the same way some people do by policy. i really think the most important thing, does the president trust them. 's got to form a team. the president's ultimately going to be responsible for the direction in which the administration goes. the cabinet has got to be a cohesive team that
john kerry and chuck hagel. think of a time when a president surrounded himself with meaningful people. i'm not saying that jack lew doesn't deserve to be the secretary. but he's just not a lincolnesque choice. a president who dared to break the mold. >> is asking the world that they are up to the task? let's ask john layfield and chris stirewalt and myra weinstein. it did hearken back to a time when lincoln was very comfortable with the cabinet. what happened to those days? >> one of the things that has happened is we don't do much with cabinets anymore. they are there for photo ops. outside, there are a couple of key spots in defense justice. the president isn't engaged and he was back and forth for pictures. the other part is that for the president we have gotten to know him a lot better he is not here to do a deal with republicans. we have nodeals come or not changing entitlements, and taxes are still on the table. neil: it's a safe choice for the president. he continues the philosophy of the president. maybe they want someone with a little bit more direct business experience, but
, for defense and went with chuck hagel. i know, i've got friends that are for him and against him. but, candy, the thing is, there was a woman who would have been the best person for the job. and why did he step over her? it would have been a historic choice. i think there are a lot of people who are disappointed in that. >> we have a president that's not interested in diversity. you know, i'm not sure we can make that case, can we? >> 43% of the folks we have now of women. he does believe in diversity. >> two supreme court justices. >> i mean, in his cabinet he had five women, four african-americans, three hispanics and two asian americans. that's diversity. i really believe that this president believes in diversity. that's why i say, i think it's a little bit early. >> i think this whole conversation is a symbolic way of talking about a deeper issue. which is that it remains more difficult for women to rise to the top and it's worse in politics, i think, than in academia or corporate america where women have made more gains. ten years i've been here, i have yet to cover a campaign or a whit
to deal with. and now these nominations of chuck hagel and john brennan over to the defense department and cia. so now it is a question of how much time they have, but now i think a lot of people will be watching, does harry reid make that time? >> some states are taking this one step further, proposing state laws that would actually make it criminal for a doctor like yourself to ask a patient. you could actually lose your medical license for asking, is that correct? >> yeah, and i'll tell you, it was even more than that in the original version of the bill down in florida, for example. and there are seven other states like this. the original version was that you could impose jail time for simply asking. so a physician asking a patient about guns could land them in jail, according to the original version. there was a scaled back version that was subsequently put forward, that you could still lose your medical license, you could get financial penalties. that was subsequently overturned by a federal judge, but it's being appealed. so yes, it could be even a step further in some of these s
's nomination and expects it to fail in the senate. qualified nominees like jack lew and chuck hagel continue to be targeted by republicans willing to block anything president obama puts forward. the gop's threat make an excellent case for why democrats must take action on filibuster reform. i'm joined tonight by howard dean, former governor of vermont and former chair of the dnc. governor dean, good to have you with us tonight. >> thanks for having me on, ed. >> you bet. is this just something harry reid has to do? i mean, if you look at taxation. >> yeah. >> if you look at gun legislation, how could any of this not get filibustered based on what we saw in the 112th? >> actually, the filibuster is designed to thwart the will of the majority. but the problem is not that, because our constitution protects the minority, which is a good thing. the problem is the republicans have made it into a farce and, basically, brought the business of the entire government to a halt. so that's why it must be changed. i'm not for getting rid of it, but i am for changing it dramatically so it can't be abused a
panetta not a happy camper about that. his likely replacement, chuck hagel, a dod budget cutter as far as we know. i'm wondering how this whole exercise is going to affect national security. here now is retired u.s. army general barry mccaffrey, military analyst for nbc news. general mccaffrey, welcome back. about $55 billion this year. can it be cut without compromising our national security, sir? >> it certainly will be an inefficient way to run a railroad. for god's sake there's only seven months left in the fiscal year. so leon panetta will go shopping with 2500 investment accounts and try and pull stuff out, not people. too late to do that. so they've got to go to the defense industry and tell them look we're not buying that many items this year. it's a lousy way to defend the country. >> well i'm sure you're right about that. but looking at the longer term issue here, the sequester itself is a ten-year issue. here's a question from one of the things i read today. why do we have a $70 billion military budget in europe? do we really need all those bases in all those resources? $70
on a fight like this with congress with when he has the chuck ha golf course e -- chuck hagel fight as well. it's like he doesn't care what republicans or nip thinks in washington and does what he wants. >> i don't see a fight with jack. he's not popular with republicans, that's true, but the other side focuses the fire on one main target, and other people get less, and i think the fire is going to be devoted to, pointed at chuck as you suggest. i think that jack lew, is not wildly popular among republicans is respected as somebody to used to run the budget office and who spent a lot of time in the career up on capitol hill working as a congressional staffer. he knows the place. he'll be owing in the nomination struggle, not unanimous consent or a love fest, but he'll be fine. cheryl: interesting. we'll continue to get your take on all things drk. thank you. >> sure, happy to be with you. cheryl: next up, back to the world's largest electronic show, and liz claman with the verizon ceo and what your smart phone can do for you. look at the ten-year treasuries. moving more than they were yeste
intentionally misleading, or he doesn't understand the legislative process. then of course you have chuck hagel. there is controversy on both the left and the right, rather right and the left over that nomination. so this president, it seems like he's pushing the envelope with these nominees. and your producers also pointed out no women. >> been called the band of brothers, a couple of articles have described it that way. maria, what's your take? >> well, i'm not worried about the "controversial nature" of these appointees. i think they will get through. and the white house feels pretty confident that they will get through. but i absolutely agree that the next set of nominees and appointees need to look a lot more like this panel, randi. and -- and i am sure, i am actually sure that it will because clearly i don't know if it was just, you know, the timing of the rollout. let's remember that susan rice was considered for secretary of state. so i don't think we'd be having this conversation if she hadn't run into trouble. certainly, diversity has always been a priority for this president. and his
. >> not only that all the people that the president talked about since won re-election. chuck hagel, john brennan. senator conquery. jack lew. >> men. >> they are all men, aren't they do they do have something in common. there is no talk about what women will repopulate the cabinet. we will lose hillary clinton. women are saying gosh, this is becoming all boy's club. that isn't what we were promised with president obama. laura ingraham had thoughts on the hypocrisy. >> the president made a big deal, big splash? 2004 we are not red, white, or blue united states of america. that was refreshing. beaten counting in washington. the president has got himself in trouble on his own, right? because he made such a big deal of well, we are diverse and have diversity. how about just have excellence. women black or gay or straight it doesn't matter. if they are excellent appointees and smart and knowledge being and can offer something to the american people isn't that what we deserve. >> >> who cares how many one legged is a is a who cares? whether they are impressive or not. >> if it were 100% white
